| | Seeking Teaching Artists in Seoul, South Korea
“Hello Kid Actor” (HKA) in Seoul, South Korea, is seeking teaching artists for the 2010-2011 school year. HKA uses Musical Theater to teach English as a second language at 25 schools and institutes in and around Seoul. The company is three years old and has grown exponentially in the last two years. We are seeking additional teachers for the 2010-2011 school year. We are actively seeking teachers with strong arts backgrounds or performers with extensive teaching experience, as we have learned over the last few years that this particular teaching job requires a wide range of skills.
Prospective teachers will participate in an audition and interview process, and will need to provide both performance and teaching resumes with references. The interview and audition process is relatively competitive. We are not seeking performers who want to take a year off. We are not looking for teachers who have no arts experience. Instead, we are interested in teaching artists who can communicate their love of the arts to first through fifth grade children, no matter the language barrier. Our current teachers range in age from 22-34, come from all over the US, and have a wide range of teaching and performing backgrounds.
Contracts are for one year (February 2010-February 2011). HKA teachers receive free housing in single occupancy furnished apartments with a washing machine. Salary is $2.5 Million Won per month. All visa-related expenses are covered by the company, as well as 50% of medical costs. Teachers also receive two weeks paid vacation, all school holidays, and round trip airfare to Seoul (where applicable).
Currently we are seeking teaching artists who already live in Korea. Our interview process requires teaching a mock class, and therefore, the teacher must be present in Korea at the time of their interview. Overseas auditions/interviews have been completed.
If you feel that you fit the HKA model, please send a cover letter, performance and educational resumes, and a headshot, to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to November 27th, 2009.
